Solo travel | My Experience & Thoughts

My travel background story

I didn't grow up travelling internationally, like so many lucky people do who live in Europe for example, with a vast array of neighbouring countries on their doorstep.
As grateful as I am to have been born in New Zealand- the downside is that it is literally at the bottom of the world, far far away from everything else. With the exception of Australia of course- only a three-hour flight away, and some of my childhood friends were lucky enough to go on vacation there but our family didn't quite have those kind of funds.
Instead, we toured New Zealand by car, every couple of years in the Summer time we would either go North or South, so I am very lucky to have explored my entire country numerous times from top to bottom.
I had always had that desire though- to reach beyond those borders, and it wasn't until I was 22 years old that I finally saved enough money for a 4 week holiday to Australia, where I got my first taste of international travel. I was instantly hooked, and thrived on the many differences between our two countries.

Top Travel Tips for beginners

As a self-confessed Wanderluster, I'd love to share some of my top travel tips and opinions to hopefully help out some first-timers.

I do believe the best way to learn is to get out there and experience it for yourself, but you can absolutely avoid some quite common mistakes and hassles if you do a little bit of research beforehand. Here are my top tips and advice for beginners:
